Fats to eat

This video is a dime a dozen, but I just wanted to post one more video in the right direction on fat. She mentions canola oil for a split second, but, Go Girl!

Fats: demystified

I've been stumped for about 2 years about fats, and was grateful to come across this info, which I excitedly share. See:
Truth about Abs.com

Its pro- coconut oil, extra-virgin olive oil, avocados, high-fat fish, nuts, seeds, free-range meat. These must not be cooked at a heat above their smoke point in order to prevent free radical formation.

Its anti- fried food, homogenized milk, hydrogenated oil, and refined oils

They state, "Anything labeled vegetable oil, soybean oil, corn oil, cottonseed oil, safflower oil, " (I add sunflower) " and even many canola oils have been damaged by this refining process (unless they say 'virgin' or 'cold expeller pressed')"

These other three articles (1) and (2) and (3) are about commercial vegetable oils and how they are harmful. Also, read "Canola: Good or Bad?"

It helps me feel better to finally have this info., but, still, unhealthy oils are rampant in our food supply making it difficult to avoid.
